We have been pretty busy around the Curran house. I finally finished the thank you notes for Adam's birthday. Better late than never, but I really need to work on getting thank you's out better. I don't know why I didn't just buy some ready made cards....I am on a serious DIY kick. Here is a peek.I have had these books for a month....I re-checked them out and they were still overdue. Bad Mom! We enjoyed them throughly. Adam never gets tired of nursery rhymes and I LOVE everything Eric Carl...Flora and Tiger is a collection of his essays.
Finally, I made it to the post office last week (my least favorite errand). I almost bought 400 stamps to ensure that I would not have to return until both boys are walking "aggressively"....I decided that would be excessive. To make it worth my trip, I bought some fun stamps. Super Heros!
We are out of here for a little while. The boys and I will be enjoying some mountain time out in New Mexico. We will be back at the end of the month. Until then....

I finally finished the prayer shawl I began ???months ago. I make these with a Knitting Group from my church. We make them for people who are sick or homebound for a little homemade comfort. Sometimes we know them, sometime not. I began this one for a friend's sister who had a baby in need of a liver transplant. He received the transplant and is doing awesome. I finished this for a friend who is fighting Stage IV liver cancer. I met her when I worked as a Children's Minister....her son, now 10, was one of my favorites. Now, I need to get up the nerve to go see her. Life is so short and full of excitement and sorrow.

I need a "Studio"

since I began my new life as a SAHM, I have been doing all kinds of arts, crafts, and writing. I keep telling my husband that I need a "studio". This is how I will turn my new hobbies into "real money making ventures." He laughs. Now, I have a GREAT idea....I will knit a studio. :)
